Mrs. Richards’ father, Harry Grange, was 9 or 10 when this photograph of Group 3, Hinderwell Council School, was taken. He is standing on the back row, 6th from the left. On the third row, third from left is Winnie Grange (sister of Harry and Alan Grange). Alan Grange is the little boy with the white tie, 5th from the left, on the second row.
